lyrics

I’m getting sick of feeling
Like nothing’s getting done
I’m getting sick of feeling overwhelmed
On the defensive
And nothings getting won
I’m tired of feeling like my time is done
Whoa, oh

And I hear someone say my dead name
And I do my best just to let it go
Don’t call me by my dead name
Just let it go

Don’t you trust my demeanor?
Don’t know if you can tell
I’m not the book that you had read before
Is anything this worth it?
I thought that you could’ve been
Someone who wouldn’t reason with what I came from
No, oh oh

And I hear someone say my dead name
And I do my best just to let it go
Don’t ask about my dead name
I don’t want you to know
There’s a reason why I’m standing
That’s something you might never know
Just forget about my dead name
Let it go

Don’t wanna hear you say my dead name
It’s time to let it go
Forget about this dead name
It was long ago
I’ve fought to still be standing
That’s something you might never know
Clawed my way out of the shame
But you’ll remind me
Of it sometimes

Just let it go and say it never (again)
